So, I finally figured out what screwed up my Lumos registration - had my 3-digit codes screwed up between my credit cards. It is all taken care of now; and I'll see you all in Vegas. Muahaha.

To those of you I mentioned my panel idea to, I'm gonna submit it soon. Lea, if you want to know what it is, I'll shoot you an email. Top sekrit (although I was telling anyone who would listen all day Sunday and Monday. Sorry, y'all).

The obligatory picture post o' d00m will be forthcoming. [livejournal.com profile] notasecretagent has some really great shots up right now.

I bought some tree-free notecards at the Red Lion shop in Salem - by Amy Brown - and they're beautiful. Not that I spend a lot of time writing, but I think I can manage to find 12 people to write short letters to. *nudgesendmeyouraddressnudge* I also bought a tee shirt from Salem Cycle. Very nice.

Ah crud. It's after midnight, AGAIN, and I'm up. Must sleep. Night, all.

I'm not going to do too much long, rambling posting about TWH, since I'm pretty much skimming the f-list myself, trying to catch up and get on solid ground before I have to go back to work tomorrow morning.

So, we have:

The Good )
The Bad )
The Ugly )

Night, all.

Finally home from Witching Hour. Can safely say I am Potter-ed out. Two hours of sleep + flight delays + two-hour drive home = dead.

I know I owe a couple of phone calls and emails; will try to get to them when my fingers aren't double-typing every other letter.

Night.
quidditchgrrl: (Witching Hour)
I'll be back up in five hours so's I can make my flight from Cleveland to Boston...maps and itineraries are printed, bags are packed, cell phone charged.

AFK until at least Monday night. Excited? Yeah. :-)
quidditchgrrl: (Kissable lips)
Well, okay, not really. I don't have an IPod to shuffle, just a little MP3 player for bike rides. But, lyric meme!

Here are some lyrics of songs I've recently ripped to my PC. Oh, CML, how I love your vast selection of free music!

These are all singles new and old; please, no Googling.

Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody )

Totally excited about Witching Hour, nervous as usual, and wondering if I should just forgo trying to decide ahead of time what to go to and just go wherever I want to...I have some things I know I'll be at (fanfic readings, banquets and such), but there are SO MANY CHOICES!

Talked to [livejournal.com profile] authenticpoppy via phone tonight. V. good conversation. Must try Neil Gaiman and Christopher Moore.

Night.
quidditchgrrl: (Witching Hour)

I have been having a blast with [livejournal.com profile] redblaze and [livejournal.com profile] tonksnymphadora this week!  I'm so happy to have fandom friends around who are all about the Ron lurve.  I think it's awesome that I can say I've known Kele for years now, and Josie nearly two (via LJ)!

I'll probably visit the two of them Monday morning at the fair, when they might have a few spare moments without swarms of customers clamoring to buy their Honey Bee lotion. 

And they're going to Witching Hour!  Yay!  Let's see, it's gonna be Kele, Josie, me, [livejournal.com profile] abigail89, [livejournal.com profile] annearchy, [livejournal.com profile] jacyevans, [livejournal.com profile] nmalfoy...who else is coming?

This fandom is an awesome place, on the whole, isn't it?  :)

I so rock.

Motivated by this to do some more searching of airline rates, I got the hookup.  Less than $200 round-trip on a what amounts to a business flight.

It also helped that I got a new credit card in the mail (which will be used to book TWH stuff and otherwise saved only for emergency use).  Yay!

I kind of wanted to do that AmTrak thing, but I'm a little too anxious about being on a train for 13+ hours.

Rawk.
quidditchgrrl: (World's Smallest Violin)
Whoa.  Witching Hour is going to cost a pretty penny, let me tell ya.

Transport (taking AmTrak):  $110
Car Rental:  $150-$200
Hotel:  $250

I guess it's about as much as I spent on Nimbus, just allocated differently.  I have to say I've gotten very, very good at getting really great internet deals for hotels/cars/travel with all these HP things.  I should be a travel agent!

Now, to find the money to pay for this...I may end up trying to locate a roommate/car share to defray some of this, but I really don't want to have to hook up with someone I don't know in a city I've never been to.  Last resort, unless one of you are looking for a roommate/car share?

I got my 'First in Line' Witching Hour t-shirt today! :D

And, I saw The Village tonight.

Possible spoilers and insults for people who thought the movie Signs was about aliens )

ETA: Oh man, I'm going straight to hell. When, exactly, did Zac Hanson turn into such a w00bie? *seeks therapy*
